Starting about 7 minutes 15 seconds in Robin takes a young archer to learn how long bows and arrows were made.
They spend most of the lesson time on arrows and explaining the importance of arrow spine.

Though some here might enjoy it even if they already know all this.

I always liked that TV show. Rare to find actual archery info discussed on tv

"Well, if it's skill you understand and skill that interests you..."

Great quote! That's how many of us ended up here!!!
Guns have triggers. Bicycles have wheels. Trees and bows have wooden limbs.

That was probably the most concise bowyery info-dump in existence on video for several decades.
